Overview

Criminology and psychology inhabit a rapidly changing world and through this course you will study not one, but two topical, challenging and fascinating disciplines.

Covering two distinct and yet complementary areas of study, this major minor Criminology with Psychology degree allows you to study the fundamental elements of each discipline.

Not only will you be able to gain an advanced understanding of crime and criminal justice systems, but you’ll be able to consider the psychology of crime in relation to such issues, making for a stimulating programme of study.

92% of our BSc (Hons) Criminology and Criminal Justice with Psychology students were satisfied with their course. We also ranked 8thin the UK for teaching quality in the latest National Student Survey.
The ability to combine two academic disciplines is also a great way of broadening your knowledge base and opening up opportunities for a wide range of interesting career options.

Career opportunities

The course gives you a solid foundation for professional training in social work, probation, youth justice, youth and community work and research. Other popular career routes include the police, prison service and other criminal justice agencies, as well as protection and victim support services. From social workers and counsellors to clinical psychologists, our recent graduates have attained positions in a variety of roles across the country.

The ability to master two academic subjects demonstrates a high level of organisational skill and enables you to enter a variety of rewarding careers. Besides gaining knowledge of two complementary subjects, you will develop key skills that employers value such as evaluating evidence and making conclusions, writing reports, the application of IT and the confidence to present logical reasoned arguments. Many of our graduates are also seen as attractive employment options because of their critical and independent thinking, analytical skills and knowledge of today’s society.
